WineScores' Review

Toasted, savoury, classic.
The back label explains the curious name of this estate and the Frenchman who once owned it. He'd spent time in Canada some two hundred years ago and was so taken with our homeland he brought the name back to France.
The Chateau is located 15 kilometers north of Bordeaux.
I review this wine year after year, and see its variations.
The 2018 suggests chocolate covered cherries, vanilla, pipe tobacco and baking spices with lashings of cedar and dried rose petals. Cocoa, espresso, spice and charred oak flavours are layered with dusty plums. It's a classic wine; this vintage has notable grip and a toasty/savoury character.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
